Here I go, starting my own Sketchbook. I used to be a longtime lurker but that shit is over !
Hi! I really like the Man with the foreshortened arm. Both the colored version and the sketch. And the building sketches, and the silly, adorable octopus. I'm also very impressed with the coloring job on the skeletal soldier. I'm glad the lurking has come to an end.
Excellent start. Really interesting stuff.
Can't wait to see more.
cool octopus :-)
Everybody seems to like that total silly octopus Its a grade of sillyness which makes it adorable and sweet ...

Everyone loves little Octo
Happy New Year everyone ... may it be very busy for us all
I had 3 weeks off now and used it to hang around with my family and just relax. After the holidays I thought a bit about Perspective. I studied some Environmental Paintings and listen to Feng Zhu DVDs. It helped me to improve a lot in every aspect ... I really dont know how I could ever lived without vanishing Points ( actually I tried not to do complicated Perspectives or I guessed it ). Here are some sketches I've done to train my perspective thinking ... it is getting easier everytime, and it become easier to imagine Objects in Space.
